This question was closed as a duplicate, but I'm not seeing it. One's asking us to consider issues for a college group project for people who have little to no experience with version control. The alleged duplicate is an experienced version control user wondering whether to switch to something more powerful for one-man non-academic projects. Even though both questions fall into the broad category of "version control," the evaluation criteria are completely different, and therefore the "why" and "how" explanations are going to be different.
It wouldn't surprise me if the question has been asked before, but the linked duplicate isn't it.
